Where two next?

Antipodean travelogue through the eyes of two - one textile and one building lover. It'll be hard to differentiate the two!

Riders of Rohan

There has been a bit of speculation regarding the name Rohan. Rohan is an Irish name meaning red head (not that he has red hair) and it is also an Indian name meaning ascending. Rohan is pronounced Rowan and can be spelt this way also. We decided not to spell his name the same way as "Rowan" wool as people might think that Sharon's interest in knitting had gone too far!

Some people also thought his name might have some reference to the Lord of the Rings and the Riders of Rohan, although the connection to NZ is more than appropriate, it's not why we picked his name. Any way some more pics.

Here's Rohan in his Moses basket.

Here's Sharon with Rohan outside in the back yard.

When Rohan was born he tried to bring his right hand out at the same time as his head! You can see his propensity to adopt such a position in the pic below!

The following pics are taken today. Rohan is 13 days old.

I go back to work tomorrow, it will be hard leaving the little man.

    Rohan is ADORABLE, and yes, I immediately thought of the Riders of Rohan when I read his name - but now I am pronouncing it correctly when I read it! :) And Sharon, you look like you are doing really well after the birth, which is wonderful.
